thinksport sunscreen

I'm sure many FW members will balk at paying $7.75 for sunscreen. With reports saying only 25% of sunscreens are "safe", I've decided I'm willing to spend a little extra.

This stuff has the highest safety rating given by the EWG.

In the past, I've bought it for about $12 - $15 per tube (3 oz). The current Amazon price is around $11.19. With this bulk seller on Amazon, I ordered 4 2-packs for $61.96 shipped, which is $7.75 per each (about $3.50 savings per). This should last us about a year, maybe 2 (sunscreen generally expires after 2 or 3 years).

Hopefully this helps some safety-conscious parents or anyone who plans to be outside and active a lot this summer.

I wouldn't be surprised if they actually ship you four tubes rather than four 2-packs. The fact that the price is about half the normal price, and the quantities available are only multiples of two makes me suspicious. Plus the description says "4-Unit VALUE PACK". I'd assume "unit" refers to tube, rather than 2-pack.

I have seen other "multi-pack" items from third-party merchants on Amazon that were actually single items that were misrepresented in the title/description. I'm sure Amazon will make it right if that's the case, but I don't want to potentially deal with the hassle.

Keep us updated when you receive them.

Thanks terp. I'll let you know. Probably I'll go ahead and contact the vendor.

Balk! I thought it was $7.75 for 8. It appears to be a good deal for those who require expensive sunscreen, so no red for you. I'll go back to using chalk for now.

So, they shipped me 2 tubes of sunscreen and tried to refund half of my money. I told them they only delivered 25% of my order and that I wanted a 75% refund. They quickly provided this.

I guess I got mine for $7.75 each in the end, but only 2 (which is kind of preferable). Also, great customer service from the seller.
